“ Elsa's story "I remember how I prayed, deeply grieving in my soul" conveys the fragile, pure nature of a dreamy, enthusiastic heroine. Elsa's arioso "Oh light-winged wind" is warmed with joyful hope, anxious expectation of happiness. The subsequent dialogue emphasizes the dissimilarity of the heroines: Ortruda's appeal to the pagan gods has a passionate, pathetic character, Elsa's speech is permeated with cordiality and warmth. The detailed ensemble scene of the dispute between Ortruda and Elsa at the cathedral - Ortruda's malicious slander and Elsa's hot, agitated speech - impresses with dynamic changes in mood. A large build-up leads to a powerful chorus quintet. There are two pictures in the third act. The first is entirely devoted to the psychological drama of Elsa and Lohengrin. In the center is her love duet. The second place is occupied by crowd scenes. A brilliant orchestral intermission introduces a wedding feast to a lively atmosphere with warlike cries, the clang of weapons and innocent tunes. The “Joyous Day” wedding choir is full of jubilation. The dialogue between Lohengrin and Elsa "The heart is tenderly burning with a wonderful fire" is one of the best episodes of the opera; wide flexible lyrical melodies with amazing depth convey the change of feelings - from the rapture of happiness to collision and disaster. The artists of the New Opera performed their parts brilliantly. Lohengrin and Elsa Mikhail Gubsky and Olga TERENTYEVA, Telramund and Ortruda Andrzej Beletsky and Anastasia Bibicheva, King Alexei Antonov. And Bibicheva amazingly performed the villainess. How much snake venom was in my voice. The powerful mezzo amazed her, it was clear that this woman would not give up on her. A huge contrast was Elsa performed by Olga Terentyeva. At first she sang in a pure innocent voice, I even decided that the singer had a light lyric soprano, but at the end of the opera her voice sounded very strong, the singer covered the Wagnerian orchestra. Mikhail Gubsky is a very rare dramatic tenor, a luxurious voice, as you know, a piece of goods. Alexei Antonov's velvet bass caressed the ear. Andrzej Bielecki in the role of Telramund was a match for his wife, he performed the part very professionally. There were flaws in the orchestra, the brass line-up was kicking. I wish it weren't. Well, I will not write the production, we will not talk about sad things ...
“ thanks for the performance 12/5/2020 Olga TERENTIEVA is undoubtedly the most beautiful Elsa - a beautiful and very even voice. The voice is gold. I liked Andrzej Beletsky Alexey Antonov Anastasia Bibicheva and Alexander Skvarko. Thank you!!!
“ Stunning beauty of Wagner's music, magnificent voices of Lohengrin (Marius Vlad) and Ortruda (Mona Zomma, 3:40 am, the opera flies in one breath.The director delicately woven modern motif into the cloth of the opera (Knight Lohengrin in a suit and not in lats , Which is very similar to Hard to be the God of the Strugatsky brothers.) God grant modern directors of the same taste and tact in the productions of classical operas and ballets.
“ I liked it very much
“ Delight! Music, voices, orchestra, scenery, direction are excellent. Unforgettably!
“ Music, vocals (especially Andrzej Beletsky) - wonderful. The choir sounds amazing. Once in Saratov, I saw a classic production, where a fabulous messenger of light forces, Lohengrin, appeared on a shiny boat. The current production is a classic fairy tale in one bottle with a version of "It's hard to be a god" turned out inside out, when good intentions are combined with a desire for power. Lohengrin turned into a pragmatic politician who appeared in the Middle Ages from a future romantic romantic, dressed in a modern white suit that was unusual for this environment. At the same time, the directors joke, showing us cigarettes, a gun ... The reading is unexpected, but today it has become very relevant. The inconsistent ruler of Lohengrin leaves, returning the missing prince-heir, but already brought up in the political realities of our days, whose sign is the same white suit, in this case a dubious symbol of purity of intent and a bright future. Bravo, "The New Opera"!
“ Thank you! We really enjoyed! Strong voices and an interesting production) I remember a beautiful and kind final. In general, we love your theater and come again!
“ Got great fun! Thank you:)
“ Thank you for your attentive attitude to the audience. Wagner's beautiful music, the content of the opera is also very interesting, even profound. However, the production seems to me not just unsuccessful, but even disgusting, just vulgar. Only the desire to listen to music helped me to sit until the end of the opera.
“ Lohengrin is shown by a modern smoking man, who at the end of the play deduces a new ruler, a fat businessman, who picks up two fingers. I think this interpretation would not have liked either Wagner or Kolobov. Modern directors! Put modern operas on modern music, and the classics should remain classics.
“ Did not like the knight in the suit. Too similar to a deputy of the State Duma.
“ Lohengrin is a magnificent unusual opera!
“ It's delightful! Many thanks for your talent and work!
